document. back in 1994, republicans used the contract with america to take back control of the house of representatives swells take back the senate. what we have seen this morning is house republicans are unveiling this pledge with america, but the bottom line is what they're trying to do is tell voters voss the country, look, we are going to reform washington. we lost our way for the past eight years or so, but we are going to help you out. what democrats have done over the past couple of years is not enough. >> are all republicans on board with this pledge? >> well, you know, mixed reviews. national review, a very well respected weekly magazine says that we'll take the pledge. they say -- they compare it to the contract with america. they say the inevitable question is -- is the pledge as bold as the contract? their answer, the pledge is bolder, but we are hearing a different theme from red state, a very nunsial blogging site. they say when aamerica needs a bold, simple fresh plan to put america on the path to constitutional insanity, we get an 8,000 word term paper of inside the b
you can use it on current employees, legacy employees so someone decides i want to clean it up. i have someone who has been five or 10 years, i want a legal work force and run their names through e-verify. why not? why not give the employers a tool? why not let them use e hifere verify with a prospective employee with a legitimate job offer. we have that under a drug testing law in iowa. if you show up and you want a job, go through all of the hoops and they can say to you, i have gone through all the hoops, you have to take a drug test before we can put you to work. that's what we do in iowa. no complaints, no lawsuits. and i encourage them to do that. we should be able to provide as employers an illegal-free workplace so modernizing e-verify so it can be used on current legacy employees and with a legitimate job offer is a legitimate thing to do. and the third component we need to do, madam speaker, out of this, is we need to clarify wages and benefits to illegals are not deductible for federal income tax purposes and doing that allows the i.r.s. to run the social security numbers an
test results for salmonella were found in both farms including in the feed mill and the water used to wash the eggs. even more alarming, during the course of its investigation, the committee has obtained records that show that write county egg tested positive for salmonella contamination in its iowa facilities prior to the widespread outbreak of the illness. environmental sample reports taken in and around the chicken cages between 2008 and 2010 indicate that write county egg received 426 positive results for salmonella including 73 that were potentially positive for salmonella en tir eye tus, the same strain that sickened 1,600 people. perhaps these findings should not be a surprise given the record of the decoster farm operation that owns the wright county egg facilities. in act, decoster farm had so many environmental and safety violations that the state of iowa declared them habitual violators and assessed a total of $219,000 in civil fines. decoster farm is the only entity to receive the habitual violater status from the state of iowa. the work of this subcommittee coupled wit
